ibase_fetch_assoc() returns an associative array that corresponds to the fetched row. Subsequent calls will return the next row in the result set, or FALSE if there are no more rows.
ibase_fetch_assoc() fetches one row of data from the result. If two or more columns of the result have the same field names, the last column will take precedence. To access the other column(s) of the same name, you either need to access the result with numeric indices by using ibase_fetch_row() or use alias names in your query.
fetch_flag is a combination of the constants IBASE_TEXT and IBASE_UNIXTIME ORed together. Passing IBASE_TEXT will cause this function to return BLOB contents instead of BLOB ids. Passing IBASE_UNIXTIME will cause this function to return date/time values as Unix timestamps instead of as formatted strings.
